Secondary Transition is the process of preparing students for adult life after they leave high school and can be thought of as a bridge between school programs and the opportunities of adult life, including higher education or training, employment, independent living and community participation. Transition planning provides opportunities for students with disabilities to experience positive post-school outcomes, such as:
- higher graduation rate
- lower dropout rates
- increased enrollment in colleges and universities
- higher rates of competitive employment
- increase levels of independence

Transition Leadership Institute (TLI) 2018
The Post-School Outcome interview process is now complete. Each administration unit (AU) attempted to contact every student in their PSO sample! As a State, our participation rate increased from 47.2% to 56%! (Participation rate is defined as "interview began" as the contact outcome.) Thank you for your hard work and all that you do for Colorado students.
